Author has written 3 stories for Criminal Minds.

My writing experience includes four plays and six published non-fiction books. I have also been a regular columnist for several financial magazines, including Money and have appeared on Good Morning, America and the Today show. Oh, and I'm also a lawyer. As you can imagine, fanfiction is a lot more fun, and I hope to continue to publish as new ideas overtake me.

Writing fanfiction for Criminal Minds has been incredibly rewarding. Having my stories read and reviewed -- and hopefully, well received -- is so exhilarating! What a rush! Thanks to all of you.

Huge love for voting "48 Hours Mystery -- For God's Will" winner in the "Most Beloved" category, Profilers Choice Awards 2015! The same immense gratitude for making "48 Hours" winner of "Best Characterization of Spencer Reid," Profilers Choice Awards 2014!

And many, many more thanks for choosing "The Venerable Reid" as winner of "Best Characterization of Reid," in the Profilers Choice Awards 2015!

This community is the BEST!

Diverging From a Fixed Path by DeejayMil reviews
